Dubbing process is still going on, but the first copies are ready to go. The kantoor series are dedicated to found sounds. Copied on a found C90, the release comes with a zine. Petrichor publishers in Deventer took care of the zine.
The sounds on the tape were found and assembled by Marcin Barski (Poland) Kristoffer Raasted ( Danmark) Roman Voronovsky ( Russia ) and Mark Vernon ( Scotland ). All four of them also provided text, collage and pictures for the zine. Additional texts were written by Giada dalla Bontà and Rinus Van Alebeek.
More info will follow soon.
The first copies of the upcoming release of K A N T O O R, the first in a series dedicated to found sounds and their collectors, are almost ready to be shipped. Destination Deventer, where the independent publishing house Petrichor will attach the tape to the zine.
You might become the proud owner of one of these tapes. The zines will all look the same of course. More on the content of both tape and zine will follow.
The production marathon started during my residency in Linz, at the cassette culture node.Linz exhibition, organised and narrated by Wolfgang Dorninger. I produced the new versions of the Berlin Tape Run. Paris Tape Run, June Crawford’s tape and Dear Concerned Employees followed.
At this moment I’m in the middle of the production process of K A N T O O R, the first issue of a tape and zine with found sounds, compiled by found sounds collectors. The release is a collaboration with Petrichor, a small independent publishing house in Deventer, in the east of the Netherlands. We aim to have the first copies available at the beginning of February.
Meanwhile in Berlin, the staaltape releases in the staalplaat store slowly start to grow in numbers. If you are on a visit, or living in the fair city of Berlin, just walk in every now and then, marvel at all the zines, posters, albums, books and tapes on display, and see if there’s something you would like to take home or give to a friend.
